Alcidion Group Limited(ASX:ALC) has completed the deployment of Miya Clinic to the Northern Integrated Care Service for the Department of Health & Human Services in Tasmania, inclusive of integrating twelve months of historical patient data into the platform.

The system provides an integrated solution for Outpatient Clinics and is interfaced with Pathology and Radiology

Additionally, the solution utilized Alcidion’s revolutionary“Smart form” technology, that enables clinically coded data to be captured and recorded in the patient’s Electronic Health Record.

The NICS was jointly funded by the Australian and Tasmanian Governments and the University of Tasmania with the aim of providing accessible, patient-focussed, integrated services for people in Northern Tasmania with specific chronic and complex conditions. The service model provides a range of integrated services for Northern Tasmanian clients with conditions including diabetes, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and for Refugee Health.

“NICS is delighted to be working with Alcidion on an opportunity to deliver a very much anticipated and ground breaking system that, for the very first time, will provide a holistic view of all the patient information at a centralised modal”, said Jan Coull, eHealth Project Manager for NICS.

The Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PC-EHR) is a shared electronic health summary set up by the Australian government with implementation overseen by the National Electronic Health Transition Authority (NEHTA). The purpose of the PC-EHR is to provide a secure electronic summary of people’s medical history and will include information such as current medications, adverse drug reactions, allergies and immunization history in an easily accessible format.
